Swiss Dot Flounce Blouse Version 2.0

I’m back again today with my newest version 2.0 of my Swiss Dot Blouse. If you missed my last post go back to see the original version of this blouse! I love this blouse with this new flounce sleeve.

I’m sew excited to share these Halloween makes! I lucked out this year- As soon as Ami saw the previews of the new Addams Family animated movie she was all in for us dressing up as the family.
